Watertown Woman Claims $100K Powerball Prize

A Watertown woman has claimed her $100,000 Powerball prize.

Debra Amy matched four of five white ball numbers and the Powerball to win the game’s $50,000 third prize in the Oct. 8 drawing. But Amy bought an option for an additional dollar that doubled the amount.

Amy claimed her prize Monday at the Sioux Falls Lottery office. She says she plans to use her winnings to finish remodeling work at her home and to help family members.

Her winning ticket was purchased at Prairie Stop in Watertown. The store will receive a $2,000 bonus for the sale.

Powerball is played in 44 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The jackpot is at $137 million for the next drawing, on Wednesday.
